I'm a long ways away from needing these but since I have Ben's lathe set up I decided to take advantage of it and turn my own. I spent $6 for the aluminum, and 6 hours of airplane time, to make my own version. Was it worth it? No doubt, not in the money saved ($44) but in what I learned about metal work and also the satisfaction of having made my own parts. There is still a bit of work left to be done on these (tapping the bolt holes for example) but overall I'm happy with how they turned out. I love these modifications!
